High Blood Pressure Education Month
May 1 – May 31 CDT
High Blood Pressure Education Month aims to save lives by increasing awareness and educating the public about cardiovascular risks and how to prevent them. High Blood Pressure Education Month is observed in May.
By encouraging everyone to take at least one heart healthy action today, we can raise awareness of and potentially reduce high blood pressure across the United States. Getting your blood pressure checked for the first time this year, asking someone you love to get their blood pressure checked or even going for a long walk can help. By coming together to reduce high blood pressure, we work to reduce the risk for heart attack and stroke.
